No expense was spared, they say, at this sprawling intown “masterpiece”

Tucked off Peachtree Road in the southern reaches of Buckhead, not far from Piedmont Hospital and restaurant rows, this custom six-bedroom has a street presence and unique facade that stand out—without being ostentatious.

Built in 2011, the home was designed by noted Atlanta architect Keith Summerour, whose distinctive, upscale, often stone-heavy dwellings span the nation.

We’re told the $3,449,999 listing, as offered in recent days through Dorsey Alston Realtors, marks the property’s first potential resale.

Find the stone-clad, 6,700-square-foot “masterpiece” where “no expense was spared” in Brookwood Hills, a leafy neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located across the street from the Brookwood Hills Community Club, it’s the neighborhood’s most expensive listing available at the moment—by more than $1.2 million. (Two other houses traded for north of $2 million, if barely so, last year.)

Beyond the exterior and eye-pleasing grounds, impressive facets include a home gym and entire rooms devoted to playing games, watching movies, and creating art.

Every ensuite, secondary bedroom includes a ladder-accessed loft space, which you just don’t see every day.

The price might be a tall ask, relatively speaking. But materials such as Venetian plaster, steel windows, Pennsylvania bluestone, limestone, and white oak flooring corroborate that the composition of this place hardly cut corners.
